(No explanation possible)

COLONEL KURTZ"Where are you from Willard ?"
WILLARD"I'm from Ohio, sir."
KURTZ"Were you born there ?"
WILLARD"Yes, sir."
KURTZ"Whereabouts ?"
WILLARD"Toledo, sir."
KURTZ"How far were you from the river ?"
WILLARD"The Ohio river, sir ?
KURTZ: "Uh-huh."
WILLARD: "About 200 miles."
KURTZ"I went down that river when I was a kid. There's a place in the river..
I can't remember... Must have been a gardenia plantation at one time. All wild and overgrown now, but aboutfive miles you'd think that heaven just fell on the earth in the form of gardenias...

Have you ever considered any real freedoms ? Freedoms -from the opinions of others... Even the opinions of yourself.They say why..., Willard, why they wanted to terminate mycommand ?"

WILLARD"I was sent on a classified mission, sir."
KURTZ"Ain't no longer classified, is it?
What did they tell you ?"
WILLARD" They told me that you had gone totally insane and that your methods were unsound."
KURTZ" Are my methods unsound?"
WILLARD" I don't see any method at all, sir."
KURTZ" I expected someone like you.
What did you expect?"

(Willard only shakes his head)

KURTZ" Are you an assassin?"
WILLARD" I'm a soldier."
KURTZ" You're neither.

You're an errand boy,
sent by grocery clerks

to collect a bill."
